It's called Release because i felt that way when working on it and now listening to it. Not to forget that I like short names :)
Originaly developed on my Korg M-1. I wrote the patterns down (having no memorycards and no own computer back then) and later recreated the track on the replacement, a GEM S3 (was so great to finaly have filters with resonance :)

Picking from the top ten
I think if you played with compressors some more to get the volume more punctual (play with compressor release) and also if you could take the tempo down at one point (maybe not suddenly, but gradually would work nicely) it would make it a more sensitive piece. I mean... it's a release... that's a given. If you play with the tempo once (don't do it more than twice... that can get a little baffling in my experience), it would probably add more sensitive to the speed with which this runs. I only just noticed it... but it doesn feel like a release unless you take it down, and then really pull the speed up. But the effect is powerful, so try to balance it well with other calming features and definitely let the sound breathe as much as possible at the end (get a good reverb on the entire thing or on the important tracks, and let the sound fill and then dwindle to nothing... and you can either take the drums to go slower and slower, or faster and faster, as long as it sounds like they're finished with their work). Man... but this is, like other comments, just opinion. Perhaps you did a perfectly good job with communicating the idea. It's nice.
